Adidam Glossary - E

ecstasy / enstasy
The words “ecstasy” and “enstasy” derive originally from Greek. Avatar Adi Da uses “ecstasy” in the literal sense of “standing (stasis) outside (ec-)” the egoic self, and “enstasy” in the sense of “standing (stasis) in (en-)” the Divine Self-Condition. As Avatar Adi Da Says in The Dawn Horse Testament Of The Ruchira Avatar, Divine Enstasy is “The Native Condition Of Standing Unconditionally As The By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Revealed Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Condition Itself”.

The ego-“I” is the fundamental activity of self-contraction, or the presumption of separate and separative existence.

Eleutherian Pan-Communion of Adidam
The Eleutherian Pan-Communion of Adidam is a California religious non-profit corporation, dedicated to the worldwide practice and the global proclamation of the true world-religion of Adidam.

“Eleutherios” (Greek for “Liberator”) is a title by which Zeus was venerated as the supreme deity in the Spiritual esotericism of ancient Greece. The Designation “Eleutherios” indicates the Divine Function of Avatar Adi Da as the Incarnation of the Divine Person, “Whose Inherently Perfect Self-'Brightness' Divinely Liberates all conditionally Manifested beings—Freely, Liberally, Gracefully, and Without Ceasing—now, and forever hereafter”.

En-Light-enment (or Enlightenment) is not just a state of mind, but rather it is an actual conversion of the body-mind to the state of Divine Consciousness Itself, or Light Itself. Thus, Avatar Adi Da sometimes writes the word “Enlightenment” with “Light” set apart by hyphens, in order to emphasize this point.
